Here Comes the Bride

The Victoria & Albert museum is set to help brides-to-be to find inspiration for their much sought after gown, with an upcoming exhibition entitled Wedding Dresses 1775-2014, running from May 3, 2014 to March 15, 2015.

Curated by Keira Miller, a Costume Mounting Specialist in the Textile Conservation Department of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the exhibition will take visitors through the evolution of the classical white wedding dress—from the declining fashionable opulence of Rococo to today’s sophisticated minimalism. Miller will put the most romantic and extravagant wedding dresses from the V&A permanent collections on display, which includes notable pieces of fashion history designed by Charles Frederick Worth, Norman Hartnell, and Charles James, next to fashionable wedding gowns from contemporary designers such as John Galliano, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, and Vera Wang.

Additionally, the V&A museum will exhibit recent acquisitions, including Gwen Stefani’s gown from her wedding with Gavin Rossdale and the purple dress worn by Dita Von Teese for her marriage to Marilyn Manson.
